Home Grown Comfy Chicken Biscuit

August 25, 2014

Maybe this is old hat to all you east side playerz, but I’ve only visited Home Grown three times now, and this past weekend was the first time I’ve heard of, seen, or tasted the comfy chicken biscuit. Let me set the scene – In bed, slightly hung over, aching for that perfect breakfast item […]

The Atlanta Burger and Fry Index

August 12, 2014

For lunch today I had the Canoe burger, which on a value/taste matrix, may be the best burger and fry in town. It’s what I call a hotel burger. It’s an over-sized hockey puck of in-house ground beef, properly cooked to temp, served with all the fixings – charred onion, pickles, tomato, lettuce, and little […]

Tomato Dishes

August 11, 2014

We are in the primetime for tomatoes, and every summer I get all anxious that I’m not taking advantage. I mean, I probably only have forty good tomato seasons in my lifetime. When I was a kid I didn’t appreciate it. Then later in life in our Matrix Reloaded sub-terrain world I will be old […]

Uni / Sushi Huku / Craft Izakaya

August 7, 2014

The other evening, after a long day, I wanted to go out by myself for a quick bite. I thought about the brand new Pig & The Pearl (no alcohol) and the new-new Luminary (would have had to fight traffic), but I ended up at a happy place – Sushi Huku for some raw fish treats. My friend/Chef Jey […]

SUMMER

July 29, 2014

LOVE IT. Cooked and ate and drank with good Friends this weekend, taking full advantage of the seasonal bounty. Field peas, corn, tomatoes, peaches, king salmon – it was basically like the cover of a July issue of Bon App up in this bitch. I brought the peaches (from SC, better than GA) and summer […]

June & July Gavage

July 22, 2014

Hey there. I took these photos. If you didn’t see them on my Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Tinder page, well then, you are in luck. Ever eaten an entire platter of chicken hearts? You can do so at Yet Tuh on Buford Highway. That place is neat. We didn’t order exceptionally well, and they missed one of our […]

Nose Dive, Bacon Bros., Mekong [Greenville, SC]

July 11, 2014

If you are ever visiting Greenville, SC (and many do, can you just believe how cute the downtown is!) here are three restaurants I feel confident in recommending to you, fellow eater. A year ago I likely wouldn’t have sent you there, but The Nose Dive is really putting out some excellent food and beverage. A gastropub from restauranteur Carl Sobocinski of […]

Lusca

June 25, 2014

Lusca has been open roughly two months now, and though I had been eagerly anticipating this opening from Octopus Bar’s Angus Brown and Nhan Le, it was just this week I made my first visit. I’ve only made it into Octopus Bar a handful of times, as it’s across town and doesn’t open until 10PM, but I really […]
